Complementing the lens itself, the Sony FE 50mm f/2.8 Macro Lens with Lens Care Kit from B&H bundles the compact normal-length prime with a lens care kit.
Sony FE 50mm f/2.8 Macro Lens
A normal-length prime with close-focusing capabilities, the FE 50mm f/2.8 Macro Lens from Sony offers an impressive 1:1 maximum magnification, along with a 6.3" minimum focusing distance, for making life-size imagery of close-up subjects. Useful controls, such as a top-printed distance and magnification scale, focus range limiter, and focus hold button, all benefit more precise focusing adjustments for refined results. Complementing the handling capabilities, the optical design also incorporates both an aspherical and an extra-low dispersion element, which work to suppress chromatic and spherical aberrations for increased clarity throughout the focus range. Additionally, the lens sports a dust- and moisture-resistant design to benefit working in inclement weather conditions.
Standard prime macro lens is designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, and can also be used on APS-C models where it provides a 75mm equivalent focal length.
True macro design affords a life-size, 1:1 magnification ratio along with a 6.3" minimum focusing distance for working with close-up subjects. A focusing distance and magnification scale is also printed on the top of the lens to aid in more technical applications.
One extra-low dispersion element is featured in the lens design and helps to reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color neutrality.
One aspherical element is incorporated in the lens design to reduce astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other monochromatic aberrations.
A focus range limiter switch allows you constrain the usable focus range between 6.3-11.8", 11.8"-infinity, or full, and a focus hold button is also featured to manually stop the autofocus at a specified point.
Dust- and moisture-sealed design better permits working in inclement conditions and rubberized control rings benefit handling in colder temperatures.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.

How does this compare to sigma 70mm f2.8 macro lens for video? i like af but can shoot in manual focus as well. i am looking for pro quality.
Asked by: Jagmeet
This compares very well to the Sigma 70mm F/2.8. It is a bit wider at 50mm compared to 70mm. The AF will work great for video with this lens on Sony E-Mount cameras.

how do I adjust the settings to increase the depth of focus?
Asked by: Michael S.
I usually use this lens as a macro lens attached to two macro extensions. Shooting in manual mode I adjust the f stop - the higher the number the more field of depth becomes. Be careful of your shutter speed and the amount of light you have.
